No offense and not meant to necessarily derail this, but shouldnt we work on sealing the rift before we start cleaning it up?
As for your idea after the fact, I would be interested to see how well it would work. Are you considering the soundwaves as a sort of filter? Say, as the water and oil are sucked up out of the ocean, use the soundwaves to hold back the oil while the less dense water pours back into the ocean?
Have you taken into account the effect soundwaves of the level needed to clean up millions of gallons of oil would have on the ocean floor, remaining ocean life, constructs, etc?
Good to see people thinking about a solution. I just pose queries to help you refine your thought.

Have you tried using Black Sabbath's "music" instead? It seems apprpiate after all since the oil is supposedly "black."
